Shallow, rich and socially successful Cher is at the top of her Beverly Hills high school's pecking scale. Seeing herself as a matchmaker, Cher first coaxes two teachers into dating each other. Emboldened by her success, she decides to give hopelessly klutzy new student Tai a makeover. When Tai becomes more popular than she is, Cher realizes that her disapproving ex-stepbrother was right about how misguided she was -- and falls for him.

More Info:
  • Brian Lowry

    A fresh, disarmingly bright and at times explosively funny comedy well worth a trip to the mall, even if it eventually runs out of gas.

  • Roger Ebert

    A smart and funny movie, and the characters are in on the joke.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Staff (Not Credited)

    Impossible to dislike: It's as good-hearted as its bubbly protagonist.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • John Leland

    The summer's most compelling movie about teenagers.

    Newsweek Full Review
  • Hal Hinson

    Ultimately, [Heckerling's] portrait is affectionate and, in places, even sweet, enabling us to laugh at them and embrace them at the same time.

  • Bruce Diones

    With its charming performances, bubble-gum colors, and intentionally funny product placements, the movie is like a kiss in a candy store—silly and sweet.

    The New Yorker Full Review
  • Peter Stack

    Though the dialogue is laced with the colloquial, the film has an inviting tone that even stuffiest of old fogies may find refreshing. Everybody gets put down, but with affection.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Susan Wloszczyna

    The film bobs along like a designer balloon, pumped with wry observations on Marky Mark and Mentos ads. But none of the other cartoonish characters command like twinkly Silverstone.

  • Peter Travers

    OK, the plot is inane, Val-gal-speak is a clichT, and Heckerling was more incisive covering similar hormonal ground 13 years ago in "Fast Times at Ridgemont High." But there's still wicked good fun to be had.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    The cinematic equivalent of cotton candy: certainly not unpleasant, but not especially satisfying despite the sweet taste.

  • Jonathan Rosenbaum

    Though this drifts at times as storytelling, it's mainly lightweight but personable fun.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    There are funny bits in Amy Heckerling's high school sat-ire, but the characters are teen-movie zombies with no discernible personality apart from their trendoid obsessions.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • David Sterritt

    For a while, it's like really cool, with lots of energy and stuff, but then it gets like major repetitious, and you wish it was like over, y'know? As if!

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    Michael Lehmann's "Heathers" followed the same sort of story line to much better effect in 1989, and Clueless leaves you itching to race over to the video store in search of just that.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Kenneth Turan

    Effervescent, unflappable, supremely pleased with herself, Cher (delightfully played by the much-publicized Alicia Silverstone) is the comic centerpiece of Clueless, a wickedly funny teen-age farce from writer-director Amy Heckerling that, like its heroine, turns out to have more to it than anyone could anticipate. [19 July 1995]
